Terrible bookmarks interface in 65.0 (for viewing recent bookmarks)

Posted

After Firefox updated to 65.0 it became terrible to use bookmarks. There are 3 ways to access them (sidebar, library->bookmarks, bookmarks item on toolbar), but all of them are inconvenient and time consuming. What was better in previous version? You only need to CTRL+B and choose one of the recent bookmarks which appeared on sidebar. But now to access recent bookmarks the shortest way is to go to library->bookmarks, which is more time-consuming. Another way to access, e.g. 15th recently bookmarked bookmark, is to go CTRL+B, expand "Other Bookmarks", and scroll whole list of bookmarks down. So why this list isn't sorted upside down by default to access recent bookmarks faster?

If you only need access to the 15-20 recently added bookmarks, you can create a new bookmark using Places query syntax and put it on your Bookmarks Toolbar.
